This is just a mockup, so it isn’t what the bus looks like right now. Although it is an actual photograph of the bus. I’m planning on putting some colorful painting on the front and the back and then the middle will be chalkboard paint, so that when we are traveling we can have other people draw on the bus and we can draw on it ourselves and make animations. For some reason I keep talking about myself in plural.
